it was amazing
Read in March, 1998

My reccommendation, if you haven't seen the movie OR read the book (there are still a few of you out there, I think) is to see the movie first. Then read the book. If you read the book first, you will absolutely despise the movie and then join a scoffing, haughty group of "I can't believe what they did to that beautiful book!" people.

Or, you can be like me and see the movie, love it, and then it will spark your interest in the book. And the book is lovely. It drips with poetry and swims around in your head.
